Declaration on data protection
As a provider of information technology and related services, LNW-Soft GmbH is committed to using state-of-the-art technology to continually improve the services we provide to our customers and to protect the personal data of customers and visitors to our websites as effectively as possible.
To this end, we have taken the appropriate technical and organizational precautions - for example, we offer you the option of encrypting e-mails or personal data entered on our websites.
"Personal data" is all information that enables or facilitates the identification of a person. You can visit the publicly available websites of LNW-Soft GmbH without having to provide any personal information. In some cases, however, it is necessary for us or our partners to obtain certain information from you in order to provide you with the correct and comprehensive service.
In these cases we will ask you for the necessary personal information, e.g. by registering with us in the Service Portal. During the registration process, we ask for your consent to collect, store, process and pass on your personal data to third parties.
If you provide this information (e.g. name, address, e-mail, type and scope of your use of products and services of LNW-Soft GmbH), we will inform you in advance in any case about how this data will be used or possibly passed on to third parties.
LNW-Soft GmbH and the intended purpose / use of your data for special purposes
In general, we use the information you voluntarily provide (e.g., during registration in our customer portal, during a telephone call to a hotline) only for the purpose for which you provided the personal data, i.e. to answer your questions, to prepare offers or information for you, to process your orders with LNW-Soft GmbH or to fulfill our delivery or service obligations.
Exceptions that apply to the collection, storage and processing:
- Protection of legal claims
- Protection from legal proceedings
- Preparation, negotiation and execution of business transactions
- Execution of official or court orders or other legal regulations
- If the purpose is directly linked to an intended purpose of which you have already been informed.
Applicant data - online applications
If you want to provide us with your application documents, please send them exclusively to the following email address:
Application documents sent to other email addresses will not be considered and will be deleted immediately. We store application documents for a maximum of 3 months after acceptance or rejection.
Furthermore, we use your personal data only to a limited extent for advertising/marketing purposes or for opinion polls. (For a more detailed description of the extent to which your personal data is used, please refer to the section "Advertising/Marketing and opinion surveys").
To the extent necessary to fulfil the purpose of the personal information collected, your personal information may also be collected, stored, processed and transferred to affiliated companies, provided that processing is necessary for the aforementioned intended purpose; and transferred to third parties as suppliers of LNW-Soft GmbH, although these suppliers may be located outside the European Economic Area.
In the event that LNW-Soft GmbH plans to transfer your personal information to third parties outside of the European Economic Area, LNW-Soft GmbH will protect your information from being transferred, for example by entering into EU model clauses specifically designed for such cases, to ensure an adequate level of protection of your personal information.
Advertising / Marketing and opinion polls
If the personal information you have provided us with contains lists or other data overviews that only refer to your membership in a category of persons, your profession, name, title, academic degrees, address and year of birth, we will only use this personal information to the extent necessary to advertise our own products, for marketing purposes and opinion surveys.
LNW-Soft GmbH may conduct surveys either directly or in cooperation with a market research institute. In this context, either LNW-Soft GmbH or the market research institute will evaluate various topics, e.g. the evaluation of products, designs, marketing measures or special user interests and requirements regarding the products and services of LNW-Soft GmbH.
Participation in surveys allows LNW-Soft GmbH to collect information that may be used by the company to develop new products and services. When LNW-Soft GmbH uses the services of a market research firm, the market research firm acts only on behalf of and at the direction of LNW-Soft GmbH.
The personal information collected in surveys is used by LNW-Soft GmbH only to further improve its own products and services, taking into account the information you provide. Any other use of your personal information by the market research institute for internal purposes or transfer to third parties is excluded.
You have the right at any time to object to the use of your personal data for advertising and marketing purposes and for opinion surveys with future effect.
LNW-Soft GmbH stores your personal data only for the time period,
- which is necessary for the fulfillment of delivery obligations and for the performance of services under the contract
- which may be necessary to comply with the legally prescribed archiving period
- which may be necessary to take action in connection with product liability
- which may be necessary for the settlement of disputes and enforcement of agreements concluded
- as long as your account with LNW-Soft GmbH is active, you have not designated it for deletion or its use by LNW-Soft GmbH has been revoked by you
If you have agreed to allow us to use your information for marketing purposes, you can easily change your mind again: the link and details can be found in the e-mail you received from us. We will not rent, distribute or sell your personal data to third parties unless you have given us permission to do so or the law requires us to do so.

LNW-Soft GmbH and the technologies used
For this purpose, cookies can be used which enable the recognition of an Internet browser. However, user profiles are not merged with data about the bearer of the pseudonym without the visitor's express consent. In particular, IP addresses are rendered unrecognizable immediately after receipt, which makes it impossible to assign user profiles to IP addresses. Visitors to this website can object to this data collection and storage at any time for the future here.
The objection applies only to the device and the web browser on which it was set, please repeat the process on all devices if necessary. If you delete the opt-out cookie, we will store the subsequent requests by default again.
Collection of access data and log files
LNW-Soft, respectively our hosting provider, raises on the basis of our legitimate interests in terms of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO data about every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, transferred data volume, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited site), IP address and the requesting provider.
For security reasons (e.g. to clarify misuse or fraud), this log file information is stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes is excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.
Use of external links
The Website may contain links to third party websites that are not affiliated with LNW-Soft GmbH. Once you have clicked on such a link, we have no control over the collection, storage or processing of any personal information that may be transmitted after you click on the link (e.g., the IP address or URL of the website containing the link), as we obviously have no control over the conduct of these third parties. Consequently, LNW-Soft GmbH does not assume any responsibility for the processing of personal data by third parties.

Right of withdrawal and deletion of personal information
You can revoke your consent to the collection, processing and use of your personal information at any time with future effect.
